China can be said the home of tea culture, when they talk about tea drinking, they also talk about ceremonial tea rituals. Ancient tea ritual is an important part of Chinese culture, unfortunately we are experiencing of fading culture of tea making in Yunnan. It’s the reason why Kevin Von has designed 9-Rites Roasted Tea Kit.
Traditionally in Yunnan family, tea ceremony is an art of life where tea was roasted around a real fire pit in the hall of a Yunnan family. As life improves, many of these families chose to move into buildings where fire pits are no longer available. Yunnan traditional tea roasting ritual can be a forgotten tradition soon.
9-Rites Roasted Tea Kit wants to bring back the fading traditional of tea roasting and brewing in Yunnan through modern glasswork. It utilizes heat-resistant boron glass to replace traditional tile pots, the transparency would enhance our tea making experience as we can witness the beauty of infusion process.
Kevin Von aims to redesign the whole tea roasting and brewing ritual for young generations. 9-Rites Roasted Tea Kit introduces a tea roasting experience while promoting Yunnan tea ceremony culture to the world.
